one thing, it's president obama, not president mccain and not president romney that lost two elections. the american people have made it clear that they are not particularly interested in finding new conflicts to get into. and not particularly interested in saying, you know exsanctions are just a road bump on the way to bombing. we should be very, very careful when we sort of toss around theories of use of military for situations that might be resolved in other ways. the other thing i would like to say about iran, we don't want them to have a nuclear weapon >> we are punishing them severely now with the sanctions. we ought to keep it up. multilateral sanctions, whatever unilateral things we want to do. and also remember, this is a country in deep trouble, does not have a nuclear weapon yes. we don't want it to have one. but remember what we v i still am an old-fashioned realist that says deterrence still works and they should know what the consequences to them would be if they ever were to use or cause us to believe they were going to use such a weapon if they had it and they don't hav

envisioned a gay when a guy like richard nixon would be elected president. now for the top story tonight. more fallout from the al gore al jazeera situation as you may know. mr. gore has made tens of millions of dollars by selling his failing far left cable network to the anti-americans who run al jazeera out of the persian gulf. some of the people currently working at current tv are said to be angry because they will lose their jobs while mr. gore enriches himself. as far as al jazeera is concerned, all you need to know is this. in 2008, that network threw a televised birthday party for a lebanese terrorist. there he is in 1979 he was imprisoned for shooting israeli civilian dead in front of his 4-year-old daughter. then murdering the little girl by bashing her head in with a rifle. he got out of prison for some reason and al jazeera threw him a big party. tell vifsed it. i'm not sure whether al gore was invited. i'm with us now fox news anchor geraldo rivera who has his own al gore story. you know this terrorist as well. you talked to him. >> i do. i interviewed him in prison a year af

fundamental reforms are possible but the president made this a defining issue in the election. to passe was going preserver medicare -- it was unrealistic to expect this would be front and center during the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> the president says he does not favor changing medicare but on the other hand, he says he favors increasing use of managed care. does that go to the same place from a different direction? >> as you know, i have a certain track record with premium support which is actually a label that can of an article that henry aaron and i wrote in 1995. it was a very different approach, not moderately different, from what congressman ryan has pursued. i have a lot of sympathy for moving in that direction. in a sensible kind of way and we already have the medicare advantage component of medicare. we are about -- about 1/4 of beneficiaries to to get their benefits through a plan offered by some private entity that agrees to take a risk-adjusted payment to cover medicare desk type benefits for people who enroll in its. . motta fighting that program gradually over a decade

for the program. 1; last year, in the 2012 election cycle, the nra contributed $20 million to federal candidates, people running for congress and for president. gun control groups, $20 million for the nra, $4,000 for the gun control groups and more than 50% of the members of the new congress get an "a" rating for the nra. so that's a sense of the clout that the nra has. i think if anything happens, legislatively, there will be regulatory changes and executive action, if anything happens, it will be smaller, rather than bigger. i think it will be a very hard row to eliminate assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. 40% of all gun sales, there is no background check, maybe if not universal, you will see expansion to that. >> shannon: we will see what recommends out. thank you for the preview of your show. >> you bet. >> shannon: the exclusive interviews and watch "fox news sunday" right after america's news headquarters. chris and leaders of gun groups from both sides tackle the debate over the seconds amendment. you will not want to miss that. folks in beijing are not breathing easy, being to

losing the election to president obama. conservative base of the republican party is not happy with this initial deal on the fiscal cliff. so they're looking for republicans to plant flags. now taxes and spending has nothing to do with chuck hagel except for gloria's point about a downsizing at the pentagon. chuck hagel has been on the record saying it's too bloated. while it's not connected to some of the other games of political chess in washington, in some ways everything is connected. >> the white house makes the calculation that if republicans are going to oppose chuck hagel because he ended up being opposed to the war in iraq, that's a fight the white house is happy to have. more than half of the public is opposed -- was opposed to the war in iraq, too, in the end. this is something that they feel they can do. they wouldn't have nominated him, wolf, if they didn't think he would get confirm but it's a political fight that they shouldn't shy away from. >> i'll bring jim acosta in this conversation in a moment. brianna keilar is standing over at the white house. john, despi

election which republicans took control of the congress. and democrats are still spooked by the fact that in a lot of red and purple districts, wolf, they lost because of the crime bill. you remember the crime bill with bill clinton, included in the crime bill was the ban on assault weapons. and so for the last two decades, the democrats have been very reluctant to touch this issue because they know it's going to hurt them, particularly with gun owners who can be very intense and very motivated to come out to vote in midterm elections in particular which we're heading into. >> but public opinion may be evolving now. i'll put up on the screen, a recent poll that we took after the newtown, connecticut massacre. restrictions on guns, 13% say there should be no restricts. 70% say there should be some restrictions. 15% said make all guns illegal. 70% some restrictions which presumably is what the president is going to be calling for seems to suggest this is the time to do something. >> it does. you look at the aggregate numbers. if you're a politician you say, that's great. let's change t
